SMU and TCU add Early Decision

April 2nd, 2013 by

Beginning fall of 2013, Southern Methodist University (SMU) and Texas Christian University (TCU) will offer a binding Early Decision (ED) option to their respective application processes. According to their joint press release, SMU and TCU will also continue to offer an Early Action (EA) option, which will remain non-binding.

Both schools have set November 1, 2013, as the deadline for all early admission applications—ED as well as EA. SMU, however, will offer students a second-round binding application option (ED II). This allows students who identify SMU as their first choice later in the process to indicate their commitment to attend SMU if offered admission.
